| Chateau rauzan
Rosen = Segura's history dates back in 1661, vineyard is opened by Pierre de meshell Rosen. He was also owner of the vineyard at the time, consisting of current Pichon-Longueville, = Comtesse de Lalande and Pichon-Longueville-Baron. In 1855, Rosen = Segura was second washita four voyages in the first luxury Chateau Lafite Rothschild, Latour, Margaux, Haut-Brion and Chateau's top in the grade 2 Mouton Rothschild, Bordeaux's best wine. In 1973, Mouton-Rothschild and promoted to first grade, now Rosen = Segura left 14 2 Chateau highest location. Seem to deserve their status wine produced in 1960's, 1970's, but the mediocre quality of 1983 vintage was changed dramatically.
Were also disappointed and look back down the wine prior to 1983, seems there is some legitimate reason. Seems it's because of the bacteria attached to old wood was used in the fermentation of the wine's fermentation tank, and being attacked by a first of many vintage has a musty, damp, Barnyard aroma. In the 1980s changed to stainless steel. After the damage of severe frost in 1956, the second owner at the time, Cameron's repotted field in a big way. It was mostly good, monocarpic Merlot clone. Not only many of the 1960s and 1970s made wine old vines of youth reflected, even of the clone selection have already left. And Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were planted and dug up stumps were replaced with the more high-quality Merlot. That also did not occur a comparative tasting of natural wine sold in a free market, because finally, Rosen = Segura was sold exclusively through the well-known Bordeaux negociant, ESH Noe. It's obvious that if sold on the free market than through exclusive contracts much more inspired quality improvement.
Since 1983, the remarkable improvements made. That year, Alexis resin & co. former President, Jack and Teo took over managing Lausanne = Segura. Jowell said, Peluso said the disease as started in the brewing Vice President. In Teo new Chai (wine warehouse) construction and stainless steel fermentation tank to increase wine production facility improvements, new oak usage ratio increased, the best grape wine that strict selection policy illustrious wine Rosen = Segura was born one after another. If you look at the quality of wine recently, certainly going this Chateau is unfailing Bordeaux top group. Only one is in Lausanne-Segura has since 1983, was wrong. Jack Teo 1987 Bordeaux vintage betray expectations can and made unpleasant companions of Bordeaux, and declared. And Rosen = Segura became for the first time in decades come, do not produce a certain vintage (i.e. 1987) in the leading Médoc rating Chateau in Chateau. In 1994, veltheimer house owned Couture, Chanel acquired Rosen = Segura.
Here wine's brilliant ones worth getting. Prices in the new quality level of this historical vineyard still hasn't caught up. Strengthened common perspectives that continue to produce wine, Rosen = Segura is a great owner recently adopted? However, wine here, judging from its tannin amount, much patience and self-restraint until maturity also require mind.
